Description
SCIENCE, SEX, AND SEXUALITY
** available as of 06/30/2021
This seminar will critically investigate scientific theories of biological sex, sex determination, sex difference, and their intersections with scientific approaches to gender and sexuality. We will explore the interplay between science and society with regard to the theories of sex and sexuality that we consider. Specific case studies may include how gender verification criteria were established for the Olympics, how research on sex-gender-sexuality systems has changed over time, and how sex determination research became framed as a balance of male and female factors, on the one hand, and under the control of "master molecules," on the other.
